She is the diva, the charmer, the dancer par excellence, she is the Dream Girl of Bollywood. Yes, you guessed it right! It’s 69th birthday of Hema Malini and we are totally in love with the ever graceful beauty.
So without further ado, here’s are five the movies that captured the magic of Hema Malani.
Seeta aur Geeta- 1972
Playing double role, Hema won her first Filmfare Award for this 1972 blockbuster. From street-smart Geeta to very silent Seeta, this Ramesh Sippy film helped Hema to showcase her talent. Hema became a household name after this movie.
The motormouth tangewali who stole Veeru’s heart, the role of Basanti can be called one of the finest that Hema played onscreen. Brilliant comic timing and superb dialogue delivery, Hema became Basanti. Even after decades, Hema remains etched in our minds as Basanti.
1975 saw Hema playing talkative Basanti and reticent Kusum. While Sholay was a commercial success, Khushboo is still remembered as a Gulzar movie with beautiful unspoken romantic moments and lilting melodies.
Dream Girl- 1977
The movie that made Hema the Dream Girl of Bollywood. She looked ethereal, elegant and covered the entire canvass of acting in this film. Playing five different characters – Sapna, Padma, Champabai, Dream girl, and Rajkumari – Hema showed that she is not just a pretty face but can act too. India fell in love with her.
Who thought grandmom could look that pretty. Remember her beautiful yellow sari? Hema showed that she can reinvent her game and ace it too.
